New Year 2012 - Fireworks


New Year countdown is a popular practice in many parts of the world to welcome the coming of a new year. The final seconds into a new year is usually accompanied by the deafening sounds of firework.

Fireworks have become the symbol of new year celebration and hence, Thailand Post has once again used fireworks in its 2012 New Year stamps design. The spectacular fireworks in the stamps are heightened with Glitter Ink printing technique which adds sparkles to the stamps.

Besides, above stamp issue also aims to promote stamp collecting activities, and these colourful fireworks stamps would definitely look good when affixed on New Year greeting cards.

A LIL' NOTE

Another note to self - above is a memento from my Phuket trip. It's the glitters on the stamps that attract me to buy this issue.

And what better time to share above stamp issue than now on this last day of 2016, as a way to herald the new year of 2017 :)
